What does the tyre industry have to offer Essex-based businesses which wish to save money?
Fuel Efficiency and Rolling Resistance
Tyres are made to be driven on at their optimised pressure nowadays. Ensure your company vehicles have tyres inflated to the correct level to improve fuel efficiency by lowering rolling resistance to spending less on refuelling.
Winter Tyres for Harsh Conditions
In Essex, the winters are not that harsh but modern tyre manufacturers produce some excellent winter tyres that come into their own if you need to make deliveries in the North or to travel in exposed locations. Simply put, they last longer in sub-zero temperatures affording more grip in the process.
Premium Tyres for Longer Wear

Many local garages offer premium tyres at fair prices. If you can save money, you should definitely invest in premium tyres as they will help your vehicle reach its best potential. Let’s say you are in Essex, you can get high-quality tyres in Basildon and nearby at Jet Wheel Tyre, for instance. If you replace your tyres on time, it will save you from unwanted road trouble later.
Less Acceleration and Driver Care
This is something anyone who drives a commercial vehicle or a company car should do. By pulling away from less aggressively, so the life of your tyres will be preserved. Reward employees who drive their cars with care because it will save your business needless expenditure if you do.
Budget Tyres for One-Off Replacements
Once in a while, you may find that a tyre suffers a blowout or a puncture that cannot be economically repaired. Rather than spending a great deal, opt for a budget tyre that will age in line with the other premium tyres you have in place. This way, when you next come to exchange all your tyres, they will all be switched over together without the need to remove a tyre with thousands of miles left in it.
